"about 3 hours ago. I have one of the single 15 cabinets in my studio, the light colored ones with the silver dust cap on the JBL speaker. It is my relic. "

I was lucky and found it here in SEA. The guy said one of the road crew gave it to him a long time ago. It is a prized possession.

The old JBL speaker would get destroyed if I tried to drop a Phil bomb through it, so I use the crossover in my Alembic preamp and send the bombs to my newer modern bass cabinets and send the sweet high to the WOS speaker. I play a Modulus 6 string and I like to get up high with it.

Those RUSH conserts were some of my earliest live concerts. I had a friend who's big brother took us to 2112 - I was maybe 14. After that I was on my own. I was a concert junkie from the minute I got my drivers liscense. Once I saw the Dead it hit overdrive.

LS I don't know how old you are but I to have a similar experience w/ gear but not as tactile as you.When in S.F. I worked for a band whose bass player was a carbon of Phil and his gear also came up to those standards.His rig was an Alembic birds eye maple 6 string stereo.Cabinets also Alembic w/ both JBL and Gauss 15s.Amp was a Mac 2100 w/ an Alembic/Furman pre w/ an Echoplex,Moreley volume pedal and some other foot gear.He went on to be Robert Hunter's bass player.

first show at 18, NYE can do the math...marginally old.

I keep trying to convince my wife that we need to get a second mortgage so I can replace all my PA and bass gear with Meyer Sound stuff. No dice! I've even got connections so I could get a great deal..but even a great deal on Meyer gear is still out of my reach.
